  • It is a beautiful neighborhood of the city, where you can find museums, shops of traditional products, temples, and a large number of attractions, which are the most typical of Japan, especially in Nara, which is one of the oldest and best preserved cities of Japan (should not be forgotten that once was capital of the Empire). While it is away from the main and most famous attractions, it is worth making time to visit. The tour bus leaves you very close there.

  • Along the pedestrian street, you can walk from an alley to a nearby residential area. Most of this is ancient buildings, wooden houses, revealing the ancient Pot of the river Deffing. Although there are a few new buildings here, but skillfully with the old building, and did not break the wind here.
